Picking my shrooms too early?
    #2703296 - 05/19/04 11:14 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Should I be harvesting flushes all at the same time? Of the cakes that I have fruited, Whenever a shroom gets pretty big and appears to have stopped growing, I've just picked it.

I've also noticed that my cakes aren't producing near as many as some of the pictures I've seen. I think the most I've ever gotten at one time was 5 or 6, and several small aborts and that was on one of my best ones. The other ones probably had 3 or 4 at one time.

Could my picking the shrooms too early be effecting how many I'm getting out of each cake?

not really... these very good examples you have seen can be brought on by several factors including skill that comes with experience, or it could be plain old luck.

I thought PF Tek says pick them just _before_ the veil around the cap breaks. After this, as the shroom gets bigger the amount of psilocybin reduces, and the shroom uses up nutrients which could have been used by the next shroom.

You only let the caps open, IMHO, when you want to make a print, or are showcasing.

ricecake, the potency is so subtle, that if your tripping, your not going to know the difference between open caps or not killer.

i'm not home 24 hours a day, and in that picture^^^ it can take only another couple hours for the caps to get completely flat, so its not a big deal for me, i pick em on my own schedule.

I dont get the professional flushes like MAGASH and some others , so I usually pick them when the majority is mature,like in this pick VVV



Then I pick all of them,some I print,some I let grow even more.I have waited after 24 hours after harvesting the biggest ones,then harvesting the others .
